So I'm sure you've heard the stories about Aquarius people. They're fun-loving, airy, a bit out of their minds.... Yeah, well, that stuff is all true! Well at least a little bit.
There are two kinds of Aquarians in the world: the loud, sociable, party animal type, and the reserved, shy but sweet type. I've even seen a few hybrids. It doesn't really matter though, because beneath that they're fundamentally the same. Both are exceptionally smart, funny, big-hearted (perhaps to a fault) humanitarians.
Both are also likely to have a large circle of what others might call friends, perhaps even the Aquarians themselves. But they might "feel" more like aqcuaitences to them. A lot of people might not realize it, but Aquarians often feel very lonely.

I was lucky to be schooled on how to write properly and I practiced, joined writer's groups, got critique, and practiced more. I believe I had a firm base to help me develop as a writer. Granted, even though my early days were writing fan-fiction, they were stand-alone stories. My roleplaying was "live-action" as we didn't have forums or chats to post RP threads on.
Nowadays things are different. For many people, roleplay is their first foray into writing. Is that a bad thing? No
